Cherchez la femme - Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band

'Cherchez la femme' is a French phrase which literally means 'look for the woman'. When a man behaves out of character or in an otherwise inexplicable manner, it's because he is trying to cover up an affair with a woman. It was also the title of a hit single by Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band, released in 1977. The lead vocals were performed by Cory Daye.

Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band was a big band and swing influenced disco band, formed in the Bronx, New York. The single was taken from their self-titled debut album. They released two more albums before the end of the Seventies. Bassist Thomas August Darnell Browder and vibraphonist Andy Hernandez (Coati Mundi), went on to form Kid Creole and the Coconuts and Elbow Bones and the Racketeers. Lead singer Cory Daye also pursued a successful solo career.
The song 'Cherchez la femme' was covered by Gloria Estefan on her album 'Hold me, thrill me, kiss me' (1994).
